Activity Overview


OSCAR Character Analysis
( Read Lesson PlanBuy PosterBuy PDF )

As students read, a storyboard can serve as a helpful character reference log. This log (also called a character map) allows students to recall relevant information about important characters. When reading a novel, small attributes and details frequently become important as the plot progresses. With character mapping, students will record this information, helping them follow along and catch the subtleties which make reading more enjoyable!

For this character map, try using “OSCAR” so that students can analyze multiple ways that a character is developed. OSCAR requires students to seek textual evidence to identify the various lenses through which a character is portrayed by both direct and indirect characterization.
